Carmelite Cloistered Community Builds New Classical Monastery

Our Carmelite community in Pennsylvania is not only thriving, we’re planning for generations of cloistered religious sisters in the future. Plans are underway for the construction of a permanent monastery in rural Pennsylvania, centered around prayer and the making of Communion wafers for parishes around the country. Join us in building this haven of silence and prayer.

Why Are They Building?

Formerly in Brooklyn, New York, the Sisters are seeking a place where quiet prayer and contemplative life is truly possible. The changing landscape of their former neighborhood made this unique call to intercessory prayer very difficult and compromised their safety.
